Hockey Finally Getting Wearable Technology To Track Player Skills. Now that the Lightning are playing for the Stanley Cup (Sorry, Boston Bruins, this is our year), I bet you wondered how I would work a mention into a FutureLawyer post. Well, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. Because the newest thing in the Hockey arsenal is wearable computing devices for hockey sticks and skates, to measure speed, pressure, strain, and other metrics, which can be used to analyze and improve a player's performance. You won't see these in Cup games this year; but, like other wearable tech, you will be seeing a lot of them in the future. Go Lightning.
